Welcome to Class 1

Welcome back to the final half term of Year 1! I hope you had a lovely two-week break and that you are looking forward to our last half term together. This half term, we have by Mrs Doran, Mr Massey and Miss Green in our class to support the children with their learning.

In Literacy, we will be exploring the book 'The Naughty Bus'. The children will be joining a mischievous toy bus on his exciting journey, producing some wonderful pieces of writing along the way. In Maths we will be revisiting addition and subtraction within 20 before beginning our new topics 'Multiplication & Division' and 'Numbers to 100'. 

Our new Science topic is 'Holiday'. The children will be identifying ways of protecting themselves from too much sunlight and perform a simple test to investigating how to keep water cold on a hot, sunny day. They will also be identifying and classifying different sea creatures and describing how they are suited to their environment. In History, we will be exploring the question 'Why is the history of my locality significant?' The children will use pictures and artefacts to learn about significant people and events in Manchester.

This half term, Year 1 will have PE on Wednesday and Friday. On these days, your child must come into school in sportswear for the full day. PE sessions will be outdoors, so please ensure that their sports clothing is weather appropriate. If your child doesn't come into school in a full PE kit on these days, we will give you a call in the morning so that it can be brought to school. During PE lessons this half term, the children will be doing dance, multi-skills and football.
